Netflix has acquired worldwide rights to the next four films from the Duplass brothers. Jay and Mark are the indie duo behind 'Creep' and 'Jeff, Who Lives at Home'.
Mark Duplass has also written a film starring Ray Romano and directed by Alex Lehmann ('Blue Jay'). The as-yet-untitled film will come out later this year, also on Netflix.
The duo's relationship with Netflix goes back over a decade. Their first film, 2005's 'The Puffy Chair', was the first feature film the streaming service acquired. But they have also worked with its arch rival Amazon Prime Video: Jay played Josh Pfefferman in Amazon's hit series 'Transparent'. It's not clear whether he will return for the next series.
However, since signing the deal, they've made clear their commitment to Netflix.
"Turns out when you make films for Netflix, millions of people all over the world watch them," they told Variety. "This is not a terrible thing for an independent filmmaker. As Netflix continues to grow and develop new ways to reach viewers, we couldn't be more thrilled to grow our partnership."
